6 Tips for MS Patients, Their Families and Loved Ones


2. Think Before Disclosing About MS


Deciding who to tell about the multiple sclerosis diagnosis is also something to consider. This is a very personal decision. Some people may want to tell all their family, while others may prefer to tell just their partner and not the rest of family, or in some cases, not telling anyone at all. “Telling others about your MS may be the first thing you want to do — or the last. No two people feel exactly the same about disclosing their MS to others.
